Preventive health has been pushed to the forefront in Singapore's recently launched Healthier SG initiative. Businesses have the opportunity to more effectively promote employee health and well-being while the healthcare industry has the opportunity to drive innovation and research into preventive healthcare solutions. Leveraging microbiomes can play an important role in supporting both public and private sector priorities.
The microbiome has been described as "the most important scientific discovery for human healthcare in recent decades" given its broad impact to human health. Bill Gates has also identified the microbiome as a solution to solving malnutrition and a key component to nutritional health. But what exactly is the microbiome and how will it change the way we think about health and healthcare?
Join AmCham and AMILI for a discussion on microbiome science and its importance in building a healthier workforce. Our panel of experts will also explore how scientists, health professionals and the healthcare industry are harnessing microbiome science to improve the foods we eat and personalize the health advice we receive both at the workplace and at home.
